History Grad Nicole Meldahl Volunteers for Western Neighborhoods Project

HOODLINE -- The project is staffed entirely by volunteers, some of whom work out of a second-story office on Geary Boulevard filled with historical photos, posters and other ephemera. Volunteers post original articles, retouch photos, produce a podcast and maintain message boards, in addition to creating events where people can come together to explore local history. “We’ve been doing tons of events,” said Nicole Meldahl, a volunteer who started working with the Western Neighborhoods Project after attending SF State as a History major. She is now the collections manager, registrar and a board member. “We do lots of history walks for our members, we just did an historic pub crawl on Clement Street, and we have a bike tour of western Golden Gate Park coming up on June 6.”
